Comfort Colors®

Comfort Colors® joined the Gildan family of brands in 2015. Like your favorite tee on that lazy Sunday afternoon, the Comfort Colors® collection of garment dyed tees delivers that laidback feeling. These products offer the perfect vintage, authentic look across an incredible spectrum of subdued shades and brights.


We have two unique dyeing processes to choose from, depending on the look you want. Direct/Reactive dyes deliver bright, bold color hues, but Pigment dyes give garments a lived-in, vintage look, with colors that soften and age with washing.
